The latest model to segue into acting is Agyness Deyn. Deyn, whom Elle points out "makes fewer and fewer fashion-themed appearances each year," will appear alongside fellow catwalker-cum-thespian Waris Ahluwalia in Ahluwalia's short film for website Deyn also played the lead in the movie Pusher, which is about a London drug dealer.

The short film will feature Deyn in Hitchock-inspired outfits styled by Heidi Bivens. Bivens said in an interview that "2e’ll probably still see [Deyn] in special-assignment modeling but she’s really pursuing acting now."
